  Halloween 

Thanksgiving 

Christmas

The last quarter of the year has always been my favorite time to build inventory.

The best time to list a house is now...October and November.

There will be less inventory and fewer buyers...but the buyers who are out looking in the next couple of months will be serious buyers...not tire kickers or those out for decorating ideas from the spring and summer open houses.

These are buyers who have time off at the end of the year and the semester breaks allow for a mid-year move,

To repeat, the best time to sell is when you and your house are both ready. So if you, your family and your house are ready, go for it get it on the market.

 

Starting today the public is getting this message.

This was the theme for my live radio show today.

Thanksgiving in new home

 

Take a look at my Print advertising 

 

And there is no reason to fear holiday selling.

 

 

For this Halloween season, I will be going to where the pumpkins are, photographing my listings with their fun decorations and sharing them through blogging. May even pose the question What color is your pumpkin? 

 

Maybe there will be some talk of fear. 

Fear

 

 And some print ads...

 Halloween ads

 

 

 And for the Christmas holidays, there will be

parties like this and parties like this and don't forget Baltimore's

34th Street

 

 

34th Street Baltimore

 

 And maybe there will be more marketing ideas after reading the other entries. 

Thanks to Lisa Von Domek for sponsoring September's contest.

With the best of intentions I meant to contribute to this contest.  However, circumstances got into mischief and I failed to follow through.

Thanks, Debe Maxwell, CRS  The contest helped get me into the marketing for the seasons. As you can see from the links, I had quite a few from prior years.

Myrl Jeffcoat I am smiling at your comment. I did this post last minute and was glad I had prior posts to link back. Interesting how much we have contributed to the Rain over the last dozen years.

Thanks for the feature in the OFC!!

I agree - those who are looking at homes during the holidays are looking for homes. This is not the season of lookie-loos.
